Psalms 130

Verse 1

130:1 [A Song of degrees.] Out of the {a} depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.

(a) Being in great distress and sorrow.

Verse 3

130:3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, {b} who shall stand?

(b) He declares that we cannot be just before God but by forgiveness of sins.

Verse 4

130:4 But [there is] forgiveness with thee, that thou {c} mayest be feared.

(c) Because by nature you are merciful therefore the faithful revere you.

Verse 7

130:7 Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD [there is] {d} mercy, and with him [is] plenteous redemption.

(d) He shows to whom the mercy of God belongs, that is, Israel, to the Church and not the reprobate.
